About the Author
Gigi Pandian is the child of cultural anthropologists from New Mexico and the southern tip of India. After being dragged around the world during her childhood, she tried to escape her fate when she left a PhD program for art school. But adventurous academic characters wouldn't stay out of her head. Thus was born the Jaya Jones Treasure Hunt Mystery Series. The first book in the series, Artifact, was awarded a Malice Domestic Grant.

The story is an excellent read and moves quickly with clever twists and turns. It establishes Jaya's bonafides, sets the stage, and off we go on quite a wild ride through Anglo-Indian history and a Scottish archeological dig! Through it all, Jaya keeps her cool (in the time-honored tradition of Amelia Peabody). Tying together the history with the plot development is ingeniously done and the characters are well-rounded, realistic, and believable. An excellent start to a series that now contains five books.
